Recently I added an Ubuntu server at home so I can wirelessly store my data on a large hard drive. I configured Samba server in Ubuntu and the Mac would connect to it using Finder's "Connect to" menu.
However, once I reboot, the drive is gone, and I have to use the Finder again to connect the drive.
There is a very easy way Macs can connect a network drive at startup, just follow these steps:
- Mount the drive
- Open "Accounts" in system preferences
- Drag the mounted drive's icon from the desktop to the login items.
